To be sure, there are men such as Hollender who decry ladies nights as invidious discrimination.
But many of the men belonging to the class specified in Hollender's suit probably prefer a night club with ladies night that increases the percentage of female customers to a nondiscriminatory policy that results in a more unbalanced male-female ratio.
Mandatory Reporters of Child Abuse and Neglect Series: State Statutes Year Published: 2016 https:// Discusses laws that designate the groups of professionals that are required to report cases of suspected child abuse and neglect. Reporting by other persons, the responsibilities of institutions in making reports, standards for making a report, and confidentiality of the reporter's identity also are discussed.
Hopefully, the district court will dismiss this seriously misguided lawsuit.
Attorney Roy Den Hollender's lawsuit is flawed because the Fourteenth Amendment clearly does not ban this kind of "sex discrimination" by private parties and because certification of the class would violate the rules governing class action lawsuits. I will cover the class action issue in a follow-up post.
If Hollender's argument prevails, all would be subject to the same restrictions on ethnic, religious, and sex discrimination as are imposed by the Fourteenth Amendment on government.
For example, marriage requires a state-issued license.
Many, perhaps the vast majority, of the men in the class Hollender proposes to represent have interests diametrically opposed to the result he seeks to achieve.
For that reason, the district court should refuse to certify his proposed class.
In my last post, I considered the constitutional flaws in attorney Roy Hollender's suit claiming that ladies nights at night clubs are unconstitutional sex discrimination.
In this one, I explain why his proposed lawsuit also violates the rules governing class actions.
This factsheet discusses laws that designate the groups of professionals that are required to report cases of suspected child abuse and neglect.

On Hollender's theory, therefore, the Constitution would forbid individuals from engaging in racial, ethnic, or religious discrimination in deciding whom to marry, since the Equal Protection Clause surely forbids such discrimination by government.
